NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Thursday asked the Delhi Government to chalk out a time-bound plan to allot flats to 20,000 beneficiaries of a scheme launched in 1985. “The Chief Secretary, Delhi Government, shall convene a meeting to be attended by the Principal Secretary, Department of Urban Development, as also the Secretary, Land and Building Department, and the CEO, Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB), the implementing agency, to discuss the manner and the timeline in which the waitlisted registrants can be allotted residential flats,” Justice Hima Kohli said, hoping that the slum dwellers will get homes in their “lifetime”.

“The said meeting shall be convened within a period of two weeks,” she added.

She expressed her unhappiness over the lack of coordination among the governmental agencies which resulted in the “inordinate delay” in allotting the apartments.

“There is total lack of communication among the three governmental agencies which has not been rectified,” she pointed out.
